Feelings dressed up in couture!

Following a sell-out Midsumma Festival premiere in 2021, Isis Avis Loren returns to bring a bolder and brighter Ballads & Ballgowns back to Midsumma Festival 2022.

Witness once more the sheer glamour of a lone drag queen, hiding in the spotlight, encrusted in a few more rhinestones and sequins. Pining to the cardboard cut out moon never looked so mesmerising. One question remains, do you wanna see another numbah?!

Isis is set to reprise her appraised solo show with songs of heartache, passion and soul. As the latest recipient of Miss Congeniality & Costumier of the Year at the Melbourne Drag Awards, Isis takes you on a journey with the power of ballads, effortless gowns and the brilliance of drag. With years of experience on the Janome and the stages of Melbourne's LGBTQIA+ venues you are sure to get your yearly vaccination of sparkle to ward away banality.

From the mind's eye of a drag excellence pursuer, fashion aficionado & consistent overthinker, Isis Avis Loren presents Ballads & Ballgowns; Feelings Dressed Up In Couture.
